That Was Then, This Is Now

Original and similar lyrics
We used to hide from the light We made friends with the night We were headed the wrong way on a one way track Going nowhere fast We got used to the dark We thought this is who we are And we figured that we were just too far gone But we were wrong ‘Cause love came running like a river And we got washed in the water Then He said you're forgiven Your sins are gone That was then, this is now You’re bought by the blood, saved by the Son the saints all sing about That was lost, this is found And it’s time to say goodbye to the old you now So go ahead, put the past in the past Box it up like an old photograph You don’t have to go back ‘Cause that was then and this is now We've been remade by grace We've all got new names And nothing we do could ever change What He did that day When love came running like a river And we got washed in the water Then He said you’re forgiven And you belong That was then, this is now You’re bought by the blood, saved by the Son the saints all sing about That was lost, this is found And it’s time to say goodbye to the old you now So go ahead, put the past in the past Box it up like an old photograph You don’t have to go back ‘Cause that was then If we turn and confess every unrighteousness He is faithful and just to forgive Oh, so turn and confess every wrong and regret And see what it means to live That was then, this is now You’re bought by the blood, saved by the Son the saints all sing about That was lost, this is found And it’s time to say goodbye to the old you now So go ahead, put the past in the past Box it up like an old photograph You don’t have to go back ‘Cause that was then and this is now So go ahead, put the past in the past Box it up like an old photograph You don’t have to go back ‘Cause that was then and this is now

Aftermath

Tea Party "Transmission"
Desperate to take lost in its wake time slips away to soon Pleasures of fear drawing us near where could we go from hear waste what we want we beg and we're bought and nothing is wrong with us life in these veins godless and stained glimpses of hope exist Slanted advance threatened by chance time slips away to soon waste what we want we beg and we're bought and nothing is wrong with us

Engine 143

JOAN BAEZ "Joan Baez, Volume 2"
Along came the FFV the swiftest on the line Running o'er the C&O road just twenty minutes behind Running into Sou'ville headquarters on the line Receiving there strict orders from a station just behind Georgie's mother came to him with a bucket on her arm Saying my darling son be careful how you run For many a man has lost his life in trying to make lost time And if you run your engine right you'll get there just on time Up the road he darted against the rocks he crashed Upside down the engine turned and Georgie's breast was smashed His head lay against the firebox door the flames were rolling high I'm glad to be born for an engineer on the C&O road to die The doctor said to Georgie my darling boy lie still Your life may yet be saved if it is God's blessed will Oh no said George that will not do I want to die so free I want to die with the engine I love one hundred and forty three The doctor said to Georgie your life cannot be saved Murdered upon a railroad and laid in a lonesome grave His face was covered up with blood his eyes they could not see And the very last words poor Georgie said was nearer my God to thee

She Don't Have To Know

JOHN LEGEND "Get Lifted"
Oohhhhhhh stealing moments just to be with you Though its wrong its hard to tell the truth But she don't have to know She don't have to know When I meet cha I got my shades on to cover up my eyes I'm hoping that nobody sees me passing by Through my disguise I still know you recognize But you I know you got a lil secret of your own Sneaking out with me while your mans at home You know your wrong But its so strong still carrying on I go To the other side of town so I Will never risk the chance of catching her eye Cause she don't have to know She don't have to know Ooohhhh Girl I know your doing the same thing too But I wont tell your man the things we do oh no Cause he don't have to know He don't have to know Someone's watching We got to be careful next time or we're through (creeping creeping) Damn it's so stressful doing the dirt we do So sad but true And I know one day I'm going to pay Then you ask me To sneak out of town for just a day or three (1,2,3) Go to dc and hold hands publicly All through the streets Cause they don't know you and they don't know me Ohhhhhh Ill feel sorry for mistake we've made But there's no reason that we should tell her today Ohhhhh Though you give a lot of love to me Girl I know I'm not the only one you see But he don't have to know He don't have to know Ohm its getting crazy I don't want to hurt my baby And I know its supposed to be the last time for you and I But let's not end this way Wait another day.

Lost One

JAY-Z "Kingdom Come"
Uh, uh, uh, uh It's not a dis song, it's just a real song Feel me? I heard motherfuckers saying they made Hov Made Hov say, "OK so, make another Hov" Niggaz wasn't playing they day role So we parted ways like Ben and J-Lo I should've been did it but I been in a daze though I put friends over business end of the day though But when friends, business interests as they go Ain't nothing left to say though I guess we forgot what we came fo' Should've stayed in food and beverage Too much flossing Too much Sam Rothstein I ain't a bitch but I gotta divorce them Hov have to get the shallow shit up off him And I ain't even want to be famous Niggaz is brainless to unnecessarily go through these changes And I ain't even know how it came to this Except that fame is The worst drug known to man It's stronger than, heroin When you could look in the mirror like, "There I am" And still not see, what you've become I know I'm guilty of it too but, not like them You lost one [Chorus w/ Marsha (Jay-Z)] Lose one, let go to get one Left one, lose some to win some (You lost one) Story of a champion, sorry I'm a champion You lost one I don't think it's meant to be, be But she loves her work more than she does me And honestly, at twenty-three I would probably love my work more than I did she So we, ain't we It's me, and her 'Cause what she prefers over me, is work And that's, where we, differ So I have to give her Free, time, even if it hurts So breathe, mami, it's deserved You've been put on this earth to be All you can be, like the reserves And me? My time in the army, it's served So I have to allow she, her, time to serve The time's now for her In time she'll mature And maybe we, can be, we, again like we were Finally, my time's too short to share And to ask her now, it ain't fair So yeah, she lost one Lose one, let go to get one Left one, lose some to win some (Oh yeah, she lost one) Story of a champion, sorry I'm a champion You lost one My nephew died in the car I bought So I'm under the belief it's partly my fault Close my eyes and squeeze, try to block that thought Place any burden on me, but please, not that lord Time don't go back, it go forward Can't run from the pain, go towards it Some things can't be explained, what caused it? Such a beautiful soul, so pure, shit Gonna see you again, I'm sure of it 'til that time, little man I'm nauseous Your girlfriend's pregnant, the lord's gift Almost lost my faith, that restored it It's like having your life restarted Can't wait for your child's life, to be a part of it So now I'm child-like, waiting for a gift To return, when I lost you, I lost it Lose one, let go to get one Left one, lose some to win some (Colleek, I lost one) Sorry I'm a champion, Colleek, you're a champion You lost one
